The Audio PMP® Exam Prep: Conversations on Passing the PMP® Exam
The Project Management Professional® Certification exam is one of the most challenging exams anyone faces. Conquering this exam means facing a mountain of information and content from the field and from the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, 6th Edition.
Project Management Professionals (PMPs®) Carl Pritchard and Bruce Falk are ready to take you on a serious, enjoyable, in-depth, entertaining and engaging excursion through the nature of the PMP® Certification Exam and how to pass it! Carl and Bruce walk through the elements of the application, block by block, explaining how to avoid pitfalls in completing the on-line forms. They identify the four most common mistakes people make when completing the application and tackle the game plan on how and when to schedule your exam.
They give you entertaining mnemonics to remember the key elements of the first three chapters of the PMBOK® Guide (the most overlooked chapters), and then take you on a journey through each of the ten knowledge areas, from integration to stakeholder management.
It’s one thing to be tough and read through the entire PMBOK Guide®. It’s entirely an- other to remember the important elements and retain them for the exam. Bruce shares his favorite tips for memorizing the 600+ Inputs, Tools & Techniques and Outputs. He will also give you a way to track your questions and answers throughout the exam to feel comfortable you have passed BEFORE you hit that final, headache-inducing button to the end your test. Carl takes you (and Bruce) along for a ride at your favorite fast food restaurant, and gets you to buy into the fact that the temperature of each burger matters to quality and makes you understand quality control.
For over eight hours, Carl and Bruce become your audio PMP® buddies! They go along for the ride, or the walk, or the jog, carrying on clear, engaging conversations aimed at getting you to remember all of the most crucial components of information required to pass this daunting professional exam. And they do it in digestible chunks. At roughly 20 minutes per track, they take just enough time to manage one chore, complete one commute, or roll along with you for your next queue at the store or the bank.
